The Physical Education Activity Handbook, Twelfth Edition provides existing and future physical education teachers with the content knowledge and teaching techniques they need to offer their students a chance to learn a wide range of engaging activities. More than 40 activities are explained, with essential information such as equipment, rules, skills and techniques, teaching and learning strategies, and a comprehensive reference section for further expertise. Activity chapters instruct the reader in three key areas: what the activity is, how to do it, and how to teach it to others. Using this text, teachers and teachers-in-training alike will be fully prepared to offer their students a varied learning experience that is engaging, exciting, and meaningful.

The Twelfth Edition features the addition of popular/modern dance coverage, new chapters on Lacrosse and Wrestling, and increased assessment in each activity.  CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
